Isaac Walker

Blood Donation, Michigan, Recipient, Treatment

Blood and bone marrow transplant recipient Isaac Walker is alive today because of the generosity of donors in our community.

When he was 2, he was diagnosed with leukemia. During two years of treatment, he received numerous blood transfusions as his cancer went into remission. However, in 2015, it came back and Isaac underwent a successful bone marrow transplant that saved his life.

These gifts of life allowed Isaac to beat cancer and even travel to Texas to meet and thank his bone marrow donor. Now happy and healthy, Isaac wants to grow up and be a cancer researcher and give back to other patients just like him.

“I don’t want kids to go through as much pain as I had to,” said Isaac.
